Show Summary Details


This chapter expounds on the distinction Kant makes in the Analogies between the subjective and the objective time-orders. Drawing on the work of P. F. Strawson, it shows how if this distinction can be established, it leads to the vindication of the categories of substance and cause. It then shows how the second version of the first edition Deduction can be developed to yield the two-time orders. It also offers a reconstruction of the second edition Deduction, showing how it too leads to the two time-orders.

Keywords: subjective time-order; objective time-order; objectivity; spatiality; self-consciousness; synthesis; objective validity; temporal order of representations; experience; memory

Chapter.  17276 words.  Illustrated.
